Elvis would love to meet you! He is currently enjoying time in a foster home so please email to set up a meeting or learn more.

Elvis's Story

Elvis is a special kind of guy who needs a special kind of human. His friendly, playful nature is overshadowed with his high level of anxiety, which keeps him coming back to us. And all that shuffling around makes him even more anxious. This poor guy is stuck in a most unfortunate Groundhog Day–like situation. Let’s help him move on to better things!

If you are patient, experienced with this breed, and are willing to give Elvis the chance to settle in and get comfortable enough to overcome his fears and show his lovable self, you could change his life. And that will change yours.

  • I love playing with toys
  • I’m a great walking partner and can go for miles
  • Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all
  • I’m a people person! 
  • I’m a star pupil at obedience training 


  • I prefer quiet environments that aren’t crowded
  • I’d love to find an adults-only home
  • I’d prefer a home where I don’t have to share my food or toys
